Coconut Pistachio Bars

Hey guys and Ramadan Karim! Last year I made a lot of healthy Arabic sweets for Ramadan and don’t worry I will still be making those! But today for my first Ramadan recipe with a twist I chose these Coconut Pistachio Bars with a hint of rose water and orange blossom water.

These are super easy to make I promise. And they taste just amazing with no added sugar or artificial flavors. Perfect for after eftar snack or even Suhour if you love sweet stuff like I do!

You can coat them in chocolate or leave them as they are and the result will be so tasty both ways!
